Workshop Description
The purpose of the workshop is to provide an introduction to solution-focused brief practice. The model has been accepted as an evidenced based practice and there has been much research demonstrating the effectiveness of solution focus with varied populations and in varied contexts. The following topics will be covered: The distinction between short-term and brief therapies;  Assumptions; Solution-building versus problem-solving; and the seven intervention tools. The workshop is structured to encourage and allow discussion and sharing of ideas. Solution-focus follows many of the social work precepts, such as: “staying where the client is,” viewing clients as an integral part of their social environments, creating a collaborative relationship, and developing a client-centered approach.

 

Learning Objectives

After the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

1.    Name the 7 tools of solution-building
2.    Distinguish between the terms 'short-term' and 'brief".
3.    Describe the basic concepts of SFBT.
4.    Name the solution-focused assumptions

This workshop is approved for 3.0 continuing education credit hours.
